    My female lovebird is plucking it's own feathers out and tends
    to be itching more. Could she have a disease? I heard they
    pluck there feathers when they get bored or it is psychological,
    however it is getting to a point where she has plucked out all
    her tail feathers and I'm worried. Any advice? This all has
    happened within the last week. Very quick. THanks!
